Right to speech and expression is fundamental right which guaranteed to every citizen of the country so that every citizen can speak fearlessly on objectionable issues. Everyone has a freedom to criticise those things which are morally and legally wrong. The contempt of court Act, respects the right to speech and right of justice. Contempt law should be practiced only when someone attempted to lower the dignity of judiciary with mala-fide intention. Freedom of speech and judiciary are two important pillars of our constitution so it is very important to maintain a balance between the two.
